  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken cut into serving pieces
  • 2 pieces eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups cooking oil

Marinade ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 cup lemon lime soda (such as 7Up)


  • Combine chicken with marinade ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Marinate for at least 3 hours. Drain the remaining marinade afterwards.
  • Heat oil in a deep fryer or deep pot.
  • Beat egg in a bowl. Dredge chicken in flour and then dip in beaten egg. Double coat by dredging in flour again. Shake off excess flour. Perform this step to all chicken pieces.
  • Deep fry for a total of 15 minutes. Note: you can go longer if needed. If using lesser oll, fry one side for 10 minutes. Flip and fry the opposite side for 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the fryer and place over a wire rack to cool down. Transfer to a serving plate. Serve and enjoy!
